Special Thank You to Kurt D. Brown

       Kurt D. Brown is a professional photographer out of Denver Colorado. Kurt is also a member of Colorado Springs Indian Center. He has been taking photos at Colorado Springs Indian Center events for several years. When the Gathering Of Spirits drum group asked Kurt if he would help us to make a CD he was there to donate his time and help us.

       It is a great thing when a professional person will help and doesn't wish payment for their services. The Colorado Springs Indian Center is very grateful for his service, and also considers Kurt Brown a wonderful friend. The Colorado Springs Indian Center is indebted to Kurt D. Brown.

       As the President of the Colorado Springs Indian Center, I wish to thank Kurt Brown for all the time and professional photos he has given us over the years.

Thank You Kurt,

Jim Bear Running Montoya
Colorado Springs Indian Center
